Last girl Zo Zindleman, numerical ID 009-99-9999, is starting work at AllMART, where "your smile is the AllMART welcome mat. Left behind by AnnaMom, Zo moves to the Warren, an abandoned strip-mall-turned-refuge for Zo and a handful of other disaffected, forgotten kids. In a near-future world of exurban decay studded with big box stores, daily routine revolves around shopping (for those who can). For Zo, the mission is simpler: live.
